Couple arrested in Utah for administering drugs to their newborn

Colby Glen Wilde 29 and Lacey Dawn Christenson 26

Walmart employees said the suspect, Wilde, entered the store with his two-month-old daughter in a auto seat which was in a shopping cart.

Wilde and Christenson admitted to crushing up Suboxone, which police found in their home on June 28, and putting it on the child's gums in the hospital after her birth on April 9.

Police also listed theft and child abuse as possible charges.

Security officers tried to stop as he walked out, but Wilde ran out of the store so quickly that smacked into the exit doors, dropping his infant in her auto seat.

Utah County Sheriffs said informants told officers that the parents of babies born with an addiction use this method to hide it from hospital staff.

Police said they obtained a search warrant on June 28 and found drug paraphernalia in many areas of the home, including next to a baby bassinet and a child's sippy cup.

She had her other three children, boys ages eight, four, and two, with her.

According to the Utah County Sheriff's Office, on June 26, Wilde was allegedly involved in a shoplifting at a Utah Walmart.

Hoping to hide their baby's symptoms, addicted parents will often illegally administer the prescription drug Suboxone, a mixture of naloxone and buprenorphine.

Police arrested Wilde before he made it out of the parking lot and booked him into the Utah County Jail on a variety of charges, including driving under the influence, possession of heroin and methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving without insurance.

DCFS then contacted the eldest son's father (the other three children were fathered by Wilde) and granted him custody of the boy.

Christenson, Wilde's common-law wife, was in the store during the incident. The father didn't want to separate the boy from his siblings, so he took the other children into his custody as well. The infant girl was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. The parents of the other three children are Colby Wilde and Lacey Christenson.

"But there is plenty of evidence that the drug gets diverted; police seize it, addicts talk about how easy it is to buy". This medication was found in pill form and in crushed pill form. The mom is now accused of giving Suboxone to her infant daughter in April to mask the baby's heroin withdrawal.

Because all four children, who had been living in the home, could be in unsafe proximity to the paraphernalia and prescription pills Deputies added four counts each for Wilde and Christenson of child endangerment, a third-degree felony.

Family services said the two younger boys and the infant girl all tested positive for methamphetamine.

Cops say the infant daughter tested positive for methamphetamine, heroin, and morphine. They allegedly even caught Christenson smoking heroin when they arrived.

Utah Valley Hospital, where the girl was born, released a statement to Fox 13 in Salt Lake City, in which officials said newborn safety is a top priority.

Wilde and Christenson are both being held on a $10,000 cash bail.

Sergeant Spencer Cannon, from Utah County Sheriff's office, told reporters this took place "hours after the baby was born" and confirmed the pair were facing charges of drug distribution and child endangerment.

Christenson was inside Walmart with Wilde when the theft occurred.
